HELP!!! We ate at this place while in Colorado, PJ's in Manitou Springs that served perogi's and all kinds of greatness. They had these Euro Fries that had a goulash w/ small bite sized pieces of pork tenderloin. It was kind of a chili base and was SCRUMPTIOUS! We ordered them as an appetizer and devoured them in no time. The kids raved about them. Has anyone had anything similiar and would have a recipe? It was the chili base kind of but not chili fries that I'm used to and don't care for.

Thanks

This sounds good. I was thinking maybe you could post a question in the Colorado section asking if anyone has eaten at PJ's Bistro in Manitou Springs and the questions about the food.

We have a whole thread about goulash in the food forum, here's a link to my post in it. It details the ingredients used in the real deal.

http://www.city-data.com/forum/1641280-post25.html

Specifically, if you want to use pork, select a lean part like leg or loin. I'd start with at least 1 lb. for a family of four, and cube to about 1/2 inch pieces. Chop fine about two small or one large yellow onion.

Saute the onion for a few minutes over medium heat then add the pork. Saute until all sides have developed color. Sprinkle on real Hungarian paprika (you can use sweet or hot, depending on your taste), and add minced garlic. Cover and reduce heat to low. Add enough warm water to keep it from scorching periodically as it simmers - ideally, you always want to keep it about halfway up in relation to the meat - don't drown it! It will take about one and a half hours of simmering (beef takes at least two) to develop the proper tenderness. I prefer to add the salt at the end, but it can be added with the paprika as well.

As I stated in the posted link, some people add tomatoes, peppers, and the like but that is up to you.
